Young robotics champs to seek World Champion honors

Intermediate students became robotics rockstars in an afternoon before leaving to represent their school in a world championship.

Classmates, teachers, parents, and community leaders filled the Reeds Spring Intermediate School gym on April 26 to send students off in style to the VEX Robotics World Championship. Reeds Spring has five teams, 21 students, that will compete in Dallas, Texas from May 1-3.

The send-off celebration included proclamations from Governor Parson, Senator Eric Schmitt, and State Rep. Brad Hudson. The mayors of Branson West and Kimberling City also attended to show their support.
